The staff and other guests were very friendly and helpful. I learned alot about other places to visit and things to do. If you are traveling alone or in a group, this is a great place to stay.

Local supermarket and restaurants are not too far away.

It is conveniently located on the Ironshore Taxi route, and taxis from downtown will drop you off at the front gate, or to downtown will pick you up as they pass by. They will beep if they see you walking, so you can jump in.

The yard has alot of growing fruits and vegetables, so if you are lucky, you will get to see some in season.

Room Tip: If you are traveling alone, I recommend the single room. It has a private bath.

For anyone looking for somewhere nice, peaceful, beautiful with a good location- this is where you want to be! It is about 5 minutes from Montego Bay airport so you can easily get a taxi. It has a beautiful view of the sea, in a nice safe location and the place itself is lovely. Beautiful pool which is always clean, hammocks, and there's always someone around to chill with! The only thing that could beat the place itself is it's owner who is always willing to help out- she literally goes over and above the call of duty! The only problem I've had is that I can't stay away! And that's not even a problem because it's paradise here

The Bird's Nest Jamaica couldn't be more meaningful of a name for this 10-star hostel because it is exactly that. If you're a flyer looking for a nest to lay your head in Jamaica, this is the place you really NEED to be and your feathers will get that much needed high class treatment. You won't have anymore of a Jamaican experience at any other hotel or accommodation, and the awesome people running the place can be as close to you as family; even if its only for a few days.

I had the privilege of staying at least one night in all of their accommodation packages on offer. Their single bedroom suites can be rated up there with the likes of a hotel room in one of your beach-side resorts. Fully air-conditioned; pristine clean rooms, and when you wake up in the morning you're as close to pool side as you can possibly get, with an amazing view of the ocean in the distance that is a breathe of fresh air to look at.

Their 4 bedroom dormitories are a step down from the luxury single bedrooms, but just as spectacular with an added influence of social interactivity. The vibe at the hostel just rubs off on everyone, making sharing a room with 3 other people you don't know just as good as sharing a room with someone you do know. Ever made really good friends from across the globe in 2 days? I did: many a times and its all because I shared a special Jamaican experience together with each of them at the Bird's Nest Jamaica!

Last but not least, we have the 5 bedroom dormitories which is what I would easily connotate to be the Party People's Place. You're sharing a bedroom with 4 other people and its almost guaranteed you can find a common interest in having a good time. You will rest easy with all that the 4 bedroom dorm has to offer but one extra person in the room just takes things to the next level.

The Bird's Nest Jamaica is more than just a means of accommodation. The hostel boasts an environment for all your travel needs whether it is rest, adventure, party or quiet simply a really good time. The yet to be named, custom-built safari is always on hand to take you on tours to the beach (highly recommend Bounty Bay) and other adventure activities offered by the nest including the in-house kitesurfing school. And if you ever need information about places that will give you an authentic Jamaican experience, the staff are on hand to point you in the right direction, if not take you there.

Even all that I have written here will not be able to articulate the unique and wonderful experience I have had of bunking at the Bird's Nest. My utmost gratitude to my family at the Bird's Nest and everyone that made my Jamaican experience, one to remember.

BLESS UP, ONE LOVE and RESPECT! Yah mahn!

I stayed here a few months ago for 3 nights and had a great time. Partied at Pier One (have exact change at the door or they will try to rip you off on your change.). There was a place in the shopping Plaza lower level that served great jerk chicken for a good price and a major supermarket as well. It was a 20 minute walk from the hostel.

The hostel was clean and safe. It also had a nice pool with a lounging area that made for nice swimming and socializing. The people running the place were great and the girl even picked me up at the airport for a fair fee.

The only negative was the common bathroom shower set up soaked the place almost every time. Maybe instal sliding glass?

I would highly recommend this place :)

Room Tip: If you don't mind dormitory style the shared dorm by the pool is very social and if you get too out of it you can fall right into your bed or maybe sleep outside poolside :)
